ABSTRACT
There is now a large number of linguistic analyses of literary texts but in the main, the analyses fail to satisfy literaty critics -- often the linguist confines himself to a demonstration of how the text works and not what it means and far too often, the analyses presented is text-specific. What I hope to do in this article is present an approach which is not text-specific and which will always give the analyst an insight into the way some of the text's meaning is created and conveyed.
